Imagine if we kept Ramsey and Ozil fit all season … by K.M.
The weekend finally saw Arsenal produce a good game and a routine win. It was easy to see the difference of having Ramsey and Ozil back in the squad. It seemed like we had two times more talent and we looked like creating chances from nowhere. Enough was spoken about the goals and the game, so I will shift the theme of this post as to why those players were run down to the ground by the manager until they got injured? .......Read the full article here
Normally, you would safely say that any team which had been beaten 6-0, 5-1 and 6-3, like Arsenal were, in the same season, had a serious problem with their defense. But that is not really the case with the Gunners. If you take way those 17 goals in three games, Arsenal have only conceded 24 in the other 32 Premier League games, so how can we reconcile these two wildly different records? .......Read the full article here
Just over a week ago, most of us Arsenal fans were seriously worried about losing an FA cup semi-final to Wigan Athletic and slipping out of the top four, behind the in-form Everton of Roberto Martinez. O Ye of little faith, which includes me as well.
Although it is still possible that the Gunners will end up in the Europa League and without a trophy, not many of us think it is going to happen. In fact, we are odds on favourites for the FA cup after demolishing our Wembley opponents Hull City at the weekend, especially as their two best strikers are cup-tied, and we are looking up the league table again. .......Read the full article here
Hull City 0 v 3 Arsenal Match Report Infographic by allArsenal.com
Finally Arsenal produced a routine win thanks to 3 well worked goals that saw off Hull City, providing a nice boost ahead of next months FA Cup final against the Tigers at Wembley.
The Gunners got off to a sluggish start and had to call upon Szczesny on a number of occasions, but a brilliant Aaron Ramsey opener and Podolski’s second consecutive brace maintained Arsene Wenger’s side in the fourth place spot. .......Read the full article here
Like every Arsenal fan, I was gutted when Aaron Ramsey got injured on Boxing day. And that was compounded when his return was put back and the Gunners had to do without the Welshman for over three months. So the news of his return was sweet music to our ears, but by then Arsenal had lost any chance of winning the Premier League. .......Read the full article here
Is the glass half full? Only matters if you’re thirsty by Zac
Most articles start with a line like, I have been an Arsenal fan since I was knee high to Kylie Minogue or something along those lines. Well I am proud to say my first love is rugby league and my second is Arsenal. Now if anyone watches rugby league you will notice the team ethic of, take a hit for the man next to you, the free flowing rugby which at times seems “off the cuff” but the players at the top will tell you it is all earned on the training pitch. Now this is where my two loves are very similar. .......Read the full article here
We still don’t really know all the details of the injury that has kept Mesut Ozil out of the Arsenal squad for the last six weeks, other than it being something to do with his hamstring, or leg, or some part of his body. But it cannot have been too debilitating because the German is only just back in training but is already fit enough to be included in the Arsenal squad for the trip to Hull tomorrow, according to the Daily Mail. .......Read the full article here
Is this going to be one of the best season we have had in a while? by Fordo
I know most of the Arsenal fans might not be very happy with our season so far, and I will admit that I have also been heartbroken, especially in this last couple of weeks when we saw our great team going from a title contender to a top four fighting team. But has it really been that bad? .......Read the full article here
Arsene Wenger may well have been a strong candidate himself, if Arsenal had not let their title challenge slip in 2014, but the Frenchman does not seem too keen on the manager who does lead his team to the Premier League trophy winning it either, and I do not blame him one bit. And this is not because both of them have shown disrespect to Arsenal and our French manager, although that does not help them in my eyes. .......Read the full article here
There seems to be a bit of a love-in going on between Arsenal and Hull City, or between the two managers of the clubs at least. After Arsene Wenger praised Steve Bruce and Tony Pulis in his pre-match press conference, suggesting that either one of them should be up for the Premier League manager of the year award, Bruce has returned the compliment.
In a Sky Sports report, the Hull City boss has expressed his surprise at the treatment of Wenger in recent years. It seems that Wenger is right up there in Bruce’s book and he should get nothing but credit for what he has done in his 17 years in charge of the Gunners. .......Read the full article here
After the first game of the season was turned around into a great start for Arsenal, people kept saying that the Gunners would not be able to handle the pressure. But Arsenal kept going and kept proving them wrong. When the season finishes, we will have spent the most weeks at the top.
Scant consolation, I know, but it was not pressure that caused our downfall, it was the lack of players, mainly due to the desperately unlucky string of injuries and partly due to Wenger’s failings in the transfer market. Pressure, Arsenal can deal with, so for Roberto Martinez to suggest that he would rather be chasing than leading is daft, as alluded to by Arsene Wenger in a Sky Sports report. .......Read the full article here
It has been a strange season for Santi Cazorla with Arsenal this season. The Spaniard who was so brilliant in his debut season with the Gunners has failed to hit the same heights that earned him the fans’ vote for Arsenal Player of the Year last time, for whatever reasons, but he turned the clock back with a Man of the Match showing against the Hammers. .......Read the full article here
